Dialogue Event: Revision of National Building code (Architectural code-206) and Accessibility Guideline (2069)

Bringing together 14 provincial government representatives (accessibility related decision-makers and technical persons) here in Kathmandu NFDN in partnership with CBM organized “Dialogue event: Revision of accessibility related standards in Nepal” to discuss on the policy analysis reports on APSCSD 2012/13 and NBC 2017.

Prior to the event, a series of meetings were held with different ministries such as Ministry of Information, Communication Technology; Ministry of Urban Development; Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport; Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration; MoWCSC to discuss and collect suggestions on the accessibility guideline being rewritten by the federal government.

Accessibility is key to building inclusive society and is essential to ensure no one is left behind. It is a necessity for government to fulfil obligations under key treaties such as the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Principles of universal design and equal opportunities to access public/private buildings, ICTs, services and assistive technologies are key for building inclusive societies. Standards have an important role to upgrade the accessibility practice, hence the dialogue was hosted to ensure new standards in the revised policy and directives meet and incorporate the need of all persons with disabilities.

During the event, Milan Bagale, Architect engineer explained the provisions and the gaps in the National Building Code and Accessibility guideline. OPD leaders mainly suggested adoption and extensive use of technology such as hydraulic lift in transport vehicles and the like to improve accessibility practice and foster inclusion. Likewise, OPD leaders also suggested for arrangements of proper waiting rooms for persons with learning disability, visible signs for persons with hearing disability, use of proper colors for persons with intellectual disability.
